Old Dominion: Day 2, Part 2

As if spending the day with the spiritual father of the United States of America wasn't good enough, his dear friend James Monroe lived just down the road, so I had to check out his plantation, Ash Law-Highland. The white portion of the house is original to Monroe, while the yellow portion was added by a subsequent owner.


While Monroe isn't buried on his plantation, they did have a nice marble sculpture in the garden. Since there is no photography allowed inside and none of the plantation had grown in for the season, there wasn't much else to photograph. His grave will be on Monday...
